Bewley’s today launched 100% recyclable and 100% compostable takeaway cups.
'The new Bewley’s recyclable cups have a specially designed liner that breaks down in the recycling process therefore leaving 100% of the paper to be recycled cleanly,' the Irish hot beverage company said in a statement.
The compostable cups, which are manufactured in Ireland are made from sustainable paper sources and include a compostable lid and which are fully broken down once taken to industrial composting.
“At Bewley’s we have always been aware of our responsibility to the environment and always strive to reduce the impact that we have on it. Earlier this year we introduced the compostable coffee capsules, and to be able to follow it up with our new sustainable takeaway cups is something that we are really proud of,” said Jason Doyle, managing director of Bewley’s Food Service Ireland.
“Now, more than ever, customers are looking for more sustainable options and we are delighted to be able to provide them with these new recyclable and compostable cups whenever they enjoy a Bewley’s coffee on the go.’
